The other week I wrote about Somerville being named one of the best places to live in 2012 by Boston Magazine. One of my favorite lines from the Magazine’s write-up was the shout-out it gave to the area “between Highland Avenue and Winter Hill.” I call this area Central Hill – really more of an historic name than anything anyone uses in regular conversation today – but I like it. Also I found a great map of the area in “Beyond the Neck” (the excellent and out-of-print book on the architecture and development of Somerville).
Of course the more current landmark that’s put this neighborhood on the map is the restaurant Highland Kitchen. I can’t tell you how many people I’ve heard describe the area near Highland Ave between Central and School Streets as “around the corner from Highland Kitchen.”
Have I piqued your interest? Do you want to explore a cool neighborhood of Somerville outside of Davis Square? Grab brunch at Highland Kitchen, check out the art at Vernon Street Studios and stop by my new listing at 11 Pembroke Street #2, Somerville!
